Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has any advise on this. I live in South Carolina and recently filed for unemployment. I received the letter stating I was disqualified because I am not available for work during my "normal hours." (I used to work at insurance company from 9-6). I am a full time student which is why they say I am not available to work. However, the only day of the week I am not available to work is Thursday because I am there until the afternoon. Tuesday I'm there until noon. The rest of the week I am only there until 8:50 am. I have applied for all kinds of jobs, even waitressing which I did years ago, and those are night shifts so they do not interfere with school whatsoever. I'm just wondering if this seems like an appeal I would have a shot at winning, because if not it would seem pointless. I am definatly available for work, just not my old schedule. Does anyone have any advise on filing an appeal (and winning) in SC? Or a similar situation? Thanks guys!

Unless you obtained the student waiver, you can't claim. You aren't available your normal work hours, which were days.

i was discharged from employment 11/2010, after thirteen years of employment. i filed for unemployment compensation, completed the forms, and attached my arguments. i received award letter from unemployment compensation; siting 402, unable to show willful intent and am currently receiving unemplyment. What does that actually mean.... I was fired, laid off, or what. I cant explain to potential employers the reason why, after 13 years at one job, why i am no longer there...

sounds to me like you didn't willfully do what the employer may have been accusing you of; or that the accusation wasn't means to deny benefits.

What does 402 have to do with what you tell prospective employers? They have no access to your unemployment claim.

Why don't you tell us what type of work you did and why you were discharged. We can't help you if we don't know why you were let go.
